My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon on the 8th! We stayed at Excellence Punta Cana. It was really nice and romantoc. I will say,because I had no clue,tgere is a “stomach thing” going around. Tripadvisor forums talk about reports about the different resorts. I had a coworker that went 2 weeks before us and he was admitted to the hospital when he got back home. My husband was fine but I got a little something. Basically just getting over it:/  but I still enjoyed my honeymoon. Take some immodium and know where the bathrooms are lol!!

DisneyKb:  oh yeah,definately adults only. If that’s why you’re looking gor you kinda have to read the websites cleatly. Some resorts have adult only sections,we wanted totally child free and it was. It was very enjoyable. Gor Airport Transfer We Went WITH Dominican Quest and they were great. Had A  sign with our name,very nice. If you want any more in just pm me:)

There’s a couple of brand new resorts in Punta Cana worth considering. Chic is opening soon and looks promising. The Paradisus is also very nice. They offer an adult only section and pool.

We were at the Majestic Colonial this past June, wonderful resort and staff, highly recommended. The Colonial Club section is adults-only.

Just have to share – we stayed @ the Hard Rock and it was AMAZING. Great food, 13 pools, beach access, adults only areas, and a casino (a crappy one, but still a casino).

DH and I were there for 8 days and it was just perfect. The all-inclusive was perfect. I’d definitely go for an all-inclusive before I went for adults only.

 

Most of the resorts should serve bottled water only, and coffee/tea are filtered water on the resort.

We went to grand Bahia principe last January. It was great. amazing beach, tons to do, lots of pools, etc. It’s a big resort, but we had a lot of fun and although there were children there, there weren’t very many (in fact, I only really remember a couple of toddlers).

We stayed at The Grand Bavaro. It is adult only and all inclusive. Everything about our stay was perfect. Food, drinks, staff, room, adventures, etc. I can’t say anything bad about the trip except for having to come home, haha

We are staying at the Majestic Elegance (sister resort to Majestic Colonial) for our honeymoon in February. We met with a AAA represenative, and she gave us 3-4 resorts that clients gave great review on. So, I went home and looked them all up on Trip Advisor and that one had the best reviews.

The resort isn’t adults-only, but has an adult’s only section (Elegance Club). We are super exxcited to go… and had read about the the food issues there. A friend of mine went to the DR last February, and she just said to bring chewable Pepto Bismo pills, and that does help. Oh, and don’t eat the eggs! She and her hubby had a great time, though.

DisneyKb:  My boyfriend and I stayed at Secrets Punta Cana last month and it was absolute perfection. Literally zero complaints. Gorgeous with a pristine beach. The employees were the warmest, most welcoming bunch. The drinks were delicious and strong. Rose petals and hershey kisses on our bed put by the maids every night. No excessive mosquito/bee/fly/ant problems. Plenty of good night time entertainment. It is adults only and all inclusive! We got the smallest room and it was still large, clean, updated, had a pretty view of a garden, and every room has a hot tub on the balcony. All the foodwas fantastic and there was great variety of it. The resort was also the perfect balance of fun activities and quiet relaxation–long stretches of time with quiet, and then the pool would have a foam party, a floating obstacle course, or even water balloon wars. 

 

I’ll be honest–we left the resort for an excursion and had to stop at four other resorts to pick up passengers. Secrets was by far the most pristine and gorgeous out of all of them. When the bus dropped us off back later that night, the entire crowd moaned they were jealous and wished they had stayed at Secrets too.
